Chelsea and Wolves set for a cagey affair

Saturday's hosts Chelsea are coming off the back of a 1-0 loss at Goodison Park to Frank Lampard's relegation fighting Everton. The visitors are also licking their wounds after they fell to a humbling 3-0 loss at home to Brighton.

Off-field distractions to prove to much for the Blues?

Thomas Tuchel's side have had their struggles on the pitch recently, but with reports of Roman Abramovich changing his stance on unpaid loans with the club, the off-field drama has taken recent headlines.

Last three results

Chelsea 1-0 West Ham

Man United 1-1 Chelsea

Everton 1-0 Chelsea

Tuchel should be concerned about the recent performances his side have put out. Particularly when Arsenal and Tottenham now seem to be breathing down their neck. Another loss on Saturday could see Arsenal join them on 66 points with three games remaining.

Chelsea haven't exactly been free-scoring recently, with this lack of goals exaggerated by their low scoring strike force. With Lukaku seemingly half way out the door, and Werner not exactly being the mot prolific, a reliance on the likes of Mason Mount for goals is a tough ask.

Wolves on a slippery slope away from European contention

There were serious shouts for Wolves to sneak into the Champions League sports at the start of this calendar year. But a collapse in form over the past few months has seen them struggling to even get into the Conference League.

Last three results:

Newcastle 1-0 Wolves

Burnley 1-0 Wolves

Wolves 0-3 Brighton

The issue with Wolves this season has been their goalscoring. Without finding the back of the net in their last three outings, Bruno Lage's side have now began to struggle stopping them going in the other end.

Only scoring more goals than Norwich, Watford and Burnley in the league this season has made it a miracle that Wolves are even in the top half, let alone still in with a shout of European football.

The Verdict:

Chelsea aren't really scoring many. Wolves aren't really scoring at all, especially away from home. While it seems obvious, the under market for goals is actually quite unfancied by the bookies.

That's why I'm going with under 2.5 goals with bet365.
